Glowing plants could be the electrical lighting of the future

Glowing plants could be the electrical lighting of the future
Imagine that instead of switching on a lamp when it gets dark, you could read by the light of a glowing plant on your desk. MIT engineers have taken a critical first step toward making that vision a reality. By embedding specialised nanoparticles into the leaves of a watercress plant, they induced the plants to give off dim light for nearly four hours. They believe that, with further optimisation, such plants will one day be bright enough to illuminate a workspace.

Piezoelectric tiles light the way for Space Center

Piezoelectric tiles light the way for Space Center
Technology that could be used in self-powered smart cities of the future will soon be demonstrated at the NASA Kennedy Space Center’s Visitor Complex at Cape Canaveral, Florida. Ilan Stern, a senior research scientist with the Georgia Tech Research Institute, and colleagues, are collaborating on a $2 million project supported by NASA contractor Delaware North Corporation to build a 40,000-square-foot lighted outdoor footpath demonstrating applications of piezoelectricity for renewable energy.

LED lighting surge protection module installation guide

LED lighting surge protection module installation guide
LED lighting is increasingly replacing legacy light sources (mercury vapour, metal halide and sodium vapour) in outdoor applications as a result of technological revolutions in LED efficiency (higher lumens per watt), secondary optics (better lenses/reflectors), and greater thermal dissipation. However, the initial cost of installing outdoor LED lighting can be substantial; this cost is justified and payback is established based on the lower wattage demand, lower maintenance cost, and longer lifetime it offers.
